Former Mayoral candidate apologizes over remarks about Ford brothers

Publisher and former Toronto Mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson doubles down on her apology over her social media remarks about Ontario PC leader Doug Ford.

Thomson on Tuesday afternoon fanned out a message via Twitter saying she's sorry to anyone she offended by suggesting that Ford is so bent on political gain that he would shave his head to channel the popularity of his cancer-stricken late brother, Rob.

Thomson had earlier posted an apology that included a caveat that her remarks were meant only as an observation on Ford's compaign strategy.

The message that sparked the outcry was posted on Monday, but has since been removed from Thomson's account.

Thomson was bombarded with messages from critics who accused her of crossing the line.

Doug Ford was not immediately available for comment.
